Looks like that you have wax in the ear. You will have to consult an ent surgeon who will examine the ear & decide on the further course of action.

I am 22 years old, male . I get cold and throat pain at least once in a month, throat pain more often. For the past 15 years everyday mornings my nose gets blocked so that after waking up from bed I apply vicks to get relieved from that. When it is so severe and if I meet docs, they just give medicines for the time being. I feel some part of my immunity is low. So do you have any advise for me sir/madame.

Get your x ray pns done. You might be suffering from acute on chronic sinusitis with post nasal drip with supra added throat infection. Start tab. Monte fx once daily for 3 months. Otrivin nasal drop with steam inhalation twice daily for 5 days. If you currently having throat infection. You might have to start with antibiotic along with it.

I'm 18 years old. I'm suffering from sinusitis from last 4 years. What should I do now?

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
Hi If you are  having a sinus  problems for so long we have to rule out Allergic  Rhinitis and sinusitis. Get a CT PNS done. Or if you have one  done share the CT. Long term lifestyle  changes with gradually tapering medication  helps to tackle chronic sinus problems. Start taking Steam inhalation twice a day. *For chronic sinusitis you will need to take a long term course of antibiotics  together  with Nasal sprays. *You will need to avoid dusty environment  and dust mites, animal dander etc. Medical  management  is done for 3 months and then patients  condition is reviewed. Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. If polyps ate present and medical management doesn't cure Endoscopic surgery may be needed Hope this helps.

I am suffering from cold and one side nose blocked it means one side not clearing breathing. Can you suggest what should I do.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Please take Bryonia 200 – once daily for next 3-4 days. Drink plenty of warm fluids. Drinking warm fluids helps to loosen the secretions in your sinuses so that your mucus flows more freely, making you feel better faster. Studies show that drinking warm fluids relieves cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, and fatigue.

My wife age about 24 yrs she is suffering from throat pain from past 8 months and some times white coloured spots are seen near tonsils I visited many ent doctor but no use. Please prefer me some medicine

MS , MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Long standing infection in the tonsils will give rise to the white spots on the tonsils. There is a wrong notion amongst the people the tonsils should not be removed as they needed by the body. The tonsils are very much required in the early part of life when body is exposed to all kinds of micro organisms and these are trapped and processed and delivered to the immune system for production of antibodies. Later in adult life they are of a nuisance than anything else. If the tonsils are causing frequent complaints of the throat including bad breadth then better to undergo tonsillectomy.

I can understand your difficulty. This kind of problem can be effectively treated by homoeopathy with proper follow up. You may opt for private consultation. The medicine tackles the root of the problem, acts internally and gradually without adverse effects. It heals from inside out unlike superficial treatment of an ointment.

Dear sir/mam I have a niece about 8 months now, She is suffering form cold from one month, Last week, a kind of puss was in her ears. When we consulted a doc. He said that it is due to the cold and we were giving her milk with her head laid down due to which some milk may have gone to her ears. She is taking medicines as well from last 3 weeks but it is not helping out. What should we do? We only give her milk and some times banana to eat. What else can we give her to eat, She has now got 2 teeth from both upper and lower jaw. Please help.

Dear sir/mam I have a niece about 8 months now,

Last week, a kind of puss ...
I don't think milk has anything to do. Pus in ear is because either by cold spreading to middle ear and secretion getting infected or else middle ear infection. Either way damaging the membrane. Now you have to keep the ears clean by cotton swab. No water inside during bathing, no oil or ear drops. You should consult ent specialist for direct examination, diagnosis treatment for congestion and infection.
